Jason Kelce became the viral star of the Kansas City Chiefs’ divisonal playoff win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, January 22nd. The shirtless Eagles center stole the show while celebrating his brother Travis Kelce’s key touchdowns in the game. However, Kelce made an even bigger impact for one young Bills fan.

Kelce Hoists 8-Year-Old Girl Up to Suite to Meet Swift

During the game, Kelce spotted 8-year-old Lily Bynoe holding a sign saying it was her first game and she wanted to meet Taylor Swift, who was watching the game from a suite. In a heartwarming moment, Kelce lifted Bynoe up amidst the raucous pre-game tailgate so she could briefly meet her idol Swift face-to-face through the window [1].

Bynoe said of the experience:

It was the best day ever! He’s so nice! [2]

Her mother Danielle added:

Kelce was a complete gentleman about the whole thing. I’d like to thank him – she is over the moon. [3]

Swift also made Bynoe’s day by waving and blowing kisses to the emotional young fan.

Swift Cheers On Kelce From Suite With Mahomes’ Wife

As Bynoe’s encounter indicated, music superstar Swift was on hand supporting her friend Travis Kelce and the Chiefs from a luxury suite. Joining her were Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes’ wife Brittany and other friends as her special guests [4].

When Travis scored a rushing touchdown in the 4th quarter to put the Chiefs up 27-17, Swift, Mahomes and the entire suite erupted. Travis even threw up Swift’s signature heart-hands gesture as he celebrated the crucial score [5].

Brittany later posted videos to her Instagram story showing Swift dancing and singing along to music as the seconds ticked down on Kansas City’s 27-17 victory [6].

Swift has become friends with many Kansas City athletes including Travis and his brother Jason through her relationship with Brittany’s sister-in-law Sydnee Goodman. Sydnee is married to Chiefs assistant coach Greg Goodman [7].

Jason Kelce Steals Show Shirtless Alongside Swift

While Swift cheered on Travis’ key touchdown, it was Jason who stole the spotlight with his wild, shirtless celebration next to Swift’s suite. Video shows a pumped-up, shirtless Jason screaming, flexing and champagne-shotgunning with Bills fans in the parking lot [8].

Jason then rushes up to Swift’s window, presses himself against the glass and shouts elatedly as his brother and the superstar singer celebrate the crucial score [9].

The viral videos sparked memes and debate over Jason letting loose versus drawing attention away from his brother’s moment [10]. But Travis was focused on the win, saying:

To be able to get the rock right there for an important touchdown, I mean, what else could you ask for? [11]

Meanwhile, Jason’s wife Kylie Jenner shared her amused reaction to her husband’s antics on her Instagram story [12]. And the Kelce’s 2-year-old daughter Elliotte texted her dad mid-game saying “Dad, your boobies are showing” [13].

Some fans enjoyed Jason’s lighthearted celebrating:

Jason Kelce is every Bills fan today [14]

But Swift’s allegiance clearly laid with Jason’s victorious brother Travis and the Chiefs.

Young Bills Fan Trolls Swift Over Loss

While Swift met one young Bills fan briefly, she drew the social media ire of another. 10-year-old Bills fan Rylan Wood mocked up a photo of Swift looking distracted behind Josh Allen à la the viral “distracted boyfriend meme” [15].

The tweet received over 12,000 likes as Bills fans took the loss hard, seeing it as perhaps their best chance to make the Super Bowl with the dynamic Allen-Diggs combo clicking all season long [16].

What’s Next After Chiefs Slay Bills on Way to 5th Straight AFC Title Game

The Chiefs emerged victorious 27-17 over their newfound rivals, the Bills to make their 5th consecutive AFC Championship game [17]. There they will face either the Cincinnati Bengals again or host the surprise Jacksonville Jaguars.

Kansas City will look to make the Super Bowl for the third time in four years, seeking their first championship since 2020. Patrick Mahomes battled through a high ankle sprain to help hold off a dynamic Bills offense.

The Chiefs avenged a playoff loss last year to Buffalo where the Bills won a 42-32 overtime thriller en route to falling just short in the AFC title game. This battle came down to the wire as well, with KC beating the Bills 30-23 earlier in the regular season.

But Mahomes to Kelce proved too much once again despite Josh Allen’s best efforts dueling the 2018 MVP. And the viral star Kelce brothers with Swift cheering them on added to the game’s spectacle and future legend.

Jason may have stolen the headlines Sunday night. But now Travis, Mahomes and Andy Reid must stay focused. The Lombardi Trophy remains just out of reach until they finish the job in Arizona on February 12th.
